Windows 10 failed to start. Status:0xc000000f

HP Recommended
Pavillion g7-2111nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I switched from 7 to Windows 10 on my Pavillion a couple of weeks ago. Today the laptop opens with a blinking cursor. Tried a hard restart. Getting the the following in Windows Boot manager. 

Status:0xc000000f

info; the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible. I don't have a disk.

Hello,

 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome!

 

Most probably this is software relared issue but needs to be checked.

 

 

Please, watch this video >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCG9t5EB-X0   and perform hardware diagnostics over your computer. Perform short test, as well as component test. Check the HDD, RAM, systemboard.

 

If there is a hardware failure, please let me know.

 

If there is no hardware failure and all tests pass, then it is Windows related issue.

How to recover Windows:

 

*  If your computer originally came with Windows preinstalled by HP (e.g. Windows 7 OEM edition) , then your computer should have recovery partitions that can be used to recover your computer to factory default condition. Here is how:

* If your computer originally did NOT come with operating system preinstalled (e.g. you install Windows on your own post-purchase or someone else installed Windows for you), then you need to use Windows installation media for reinstallation.  If you originally had Windows 7 and it was activated successfully, then you upgraded to Win 10 and it activated successfully, then you can get Windows 10 ISO installation media directly from Microsoft servers and reinstall Windows 10 on your computer.
